    IT'S BACK... get notified when Rates Drop!!   03/19/2018

    Our newest development, RateDrop.com will monitor hotel prices for your specific dates and notify you if the Rate Drops!   Monitor hotel prices from both PRICELINE EXPRESS and HOTWIRE, as well as 'regular' retail hotel rates, based upon the specific criteria you choose.   While the benefits of tracking rates from Priceline and Hotwire are obvious, another use is to purchase a refundable hotel rate using RefundableRates.com and then also set an alert for that specific hotel using RateDrop... if the price drops, simply cancel and re-book at the new lower rate.   Uses your existing BetterBidding.com account so no additional sign-up is needed.   Get started tracking hotel rates now at RateDrop.com

Total cost $54.97 with taxes and fees.  Amenities listed were free internet, pets allowed, airport shuttle, free breakfast, swimming pool, non-smoking rooms available, and bedding (not sure what bedding means).  Underneath it said bed choice available.  I chose 2 double beds w/o microwave and fridge for $42.  It was $47 if you wanted 2 doubles w/ microwave and fridge.  King was $85.  Guest rating was 7.  Cheapest rate I could find elsewhere was $80 so I'm very pleased with the win.  It is an old style La Quinta with exterior corridors, but we're only here one night.   Before I clicked to buy the hotel, Priceline said the last person got this hotel.  I thought it was the LaQuinta  since they allow pets, and most of their hotels have 2 double beds and king options which was what I was offered.    Haven't used Priceline or Hotwire much in the last few years since I seldom find good deals any more, but this was one.

I forgot to comment on our stay.  For the price and for just one night this was a good deal, but this hotel only deserves a 2-star rating.   (I filled out the Priceline review and told them that.) We stay at a lot of 2.5 and 3-star hotels, and this hotel is NOT 2.5 star.   Room was clean, reasonable size, and modern, but the hotel buildings are dumpy and old.   We'd probably stay again for one night at this price, but I wouldn't want to stay there much longer.   Front desk clerk was snippy when I called from the airport to get the shuttle, but that can happen anywhere.  The breakfast was mediocre at best -- lots of unhealthy pre-packaged items.  There are a few restaurants within walking distance, IHOP, Pei Wei, Starbucks, and others I can't remember.

After I posted my review, I noticed the hotel is listed as a LaQuinta Inn & Suites.  It is just a plain LaQuinta -- not an Inn & Suites.  If I initially wrote LQ Inn & Suites, it was an error.  Sorry. In my experience the Inn & Suites hotels are newer and generally better.

Thanks for the follow-up telling of your experience/thoughts of the hotel, as well as clarifying the name.

 

While not your best hotel stay, hopefully it was a good value for the price paid.
